I used to work at darling park so used to walk here everyday at lunch time. Now I visit here when I go to the city.

Nothing has changed except a few shop names. Still a vibrant place to walk around on a sunny summers Sunday. Plenty of food and heaps of shops, open spaces and heaps of people. Recommend.

We strolled along the waterfront after having breakfast on a beautiful Saturday morning, it was very clean and tidy and had a great feel.

Sudney darling harbour has awesome views. Every saturday night, there is a fireworks show here. Check the timing in web before you go. Nearest train station is Townhall.

Visited Sydney in November. Down to Darling Harbour the first Sunday for breakfast. Very relaxing environment, good food, great coffee and a lovely walk afterwards. Came back the following Saturday night to watch the free fireworks.

See the big 5 Australian animals - Koala, Kangaroo, Wallaby, Tasmanian Devil, Wombat with a few more like a salt water Croc, Quokka and Cassowary in a compact setting. Pay the A$32 for the 'big ticket' and visit the ships at the Maritime Museum.

Took a walk through Darling Harbour from Sydney Chinatown area. A safe and very clean area to walk through. Many restaurants. Many people there enjoying a nice day. Close to Star Caino is a plus too.

I agree with first response, you can walk (30-40) min but take the ferry for the best views of the bridge. The bridge is adjacent to central Quay, darling harbour is further inland and bridge is not visible from there.
